available from https://www.eac.int/documents/category/sanitary-and-phytosanitary-sps-measures

The Maize PRA was initiated by the need to review the national pest lists and develop strategies for reducing Phytosanitary trade barriers in the East African region as well as develop a harmonized regional pest list for the maize with a view to developing phytosanitary import conditions that will be applied within the Eastern Africa. The objectives of the Regional Pest Risk Analysis (PRA) were to review national pest lists for maize within the East African Community (EAC); develop a harmonized EAC pest list for maize; and develop Phytosanitary import conditions for maize to be applied within the EAC.
